Let's Redefine Strength in Grief

Day 8: Let’s Redefine “Strength” in Grief

The word “strong” in grief continues to get thrown around in unhelpful ways. Here is what I hope we can adopt when we speak about “strength” in grief…

Strength in grief is braving the intensity of your feelings.

Strength in grief is riding the immense ups and downs.

Strength in grief is allowing the pain to exist.

Strength in grief is acknowledging that you’re not sure about who you are, nor your future.

Strength in grief is allowing your heart to shatter, and acknowledging that no, not all is ok.

Welcome to my second, 100-day project. I hope to provide a daily offering on something grief-related. I am a grief therapist and educator working with people in Oregon, Washington, DC, Maryland, and Maine. This feed is in honor of each person who has trusted me with their stories and wisdom during their grief journey. I hope that others may benefit from simple and straightforward talk about a topic that can be difficult.
